American Vanguard Corp. (AVD) Reports Adverse Weather May Influence First Quarter 2008 Results

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

American Vanguard Corp. (AVD), based in Newport Beach, California, is a diversified specialty and agricultural products company. American Vanguard develops and markets crop protection, turf and ornamental products, and public health insecticides. The company’s products include insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, soil fumigants, defoliants, molluscides and grown regulators.

The company reported at the beginning of April that adverse mid-west weather conditions will likely cause first quarter 2008 performance to be below that of the prior year first quarter. According to Eric Wintemute, president and chief executive officer of the company, over-abundant rainfall and continued cold temperatures have significantly affected preparation for, and implementation of, crop planting in large sections of the Midwest Corn Belt. While sales are expected to approach prior year levels, earnings will likely be impacted by higher incremental costs associated with several important new growth initiatives.

However, the company remains optimistic that, when corn planting does occur throughout the spring, much of the granular corn soil insecticide sales will be recognized in the second quarter of 2008. Wintemute added that the company’s programs for insect resistance and corn yield enhancements are expected to be significant contributors to the company’s future growth. The non-corn portions of the company’s business are experiencing solid performance in the first quarter. Further information on first quarter business and financial performance is expected to be available on May 8, 2008.

New Market China Inc. (NMCH.OB) Receives Newcomer Recognition on Dallas Top Public Company Rankings

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

New Market China, Inc. is a technology leader in the rapidly developing Chinese market, specializing in software engineering, high-quality software development, and digital multimedia outsourcing services delivered to customers globally. Yesterday, the company announced that they have been named one of the Top 200 Public Companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth area by the Dallas Business Journal. This area is a Mecca for businesses, including the likes of ExxonMobil, Southwest Airlines and Texas Instruments. In addition to making the list, New Market China was featured as one of eleven newcomers to the annual list, along with Comerica, Metro PCS and Cinemark Holdings.

A large part in making this list was the company’s rapid growth over the past couple of years. The company proudly reported total revenues of $40 million for 2007, a drastic 36% increase from only $29.5 million the prior year. The company’s CEO, John T. Verges, and CFO, Philip J. Rauch, reported that gross profit margin for the company has risen to 41% this year, and net income has risen 83% from 2006 to $991,000. The company now has positive cash flows from operations, which translates to a 55% increase in stockholder’s equity from the end of 2006.

New Market expects a further increase in sales and has set a goal of $50 million in annual revenue for 2008 through mostly organic growth, but has not ruled out the possibility of possible mergers and acquisitions. Another way that New Market hopes to better itself as a company is by improving fundamental financials such as margins and costs. They have previously declared that the breakeven point for the company is $40 million in revenues, so they expect 2008 to be the first year of profitability for the company

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Allarae Healthcare Inc. (Pink Sheets: ALHI) is focused on delivering affordable personal healthcare screening products and interactive health monitoring software. To provide consumers with these benefits, the company pursues developments and acquisitions of unique personal health screening products and services to help people monitor and understand their changing health status.

The company recognizes the lack of personal health screening and monitoring tools. While there are certain tests available in local pharmacies, the company says they only “scratch-the-surface” in providing data that can lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Occasionally, people or their loved ones are diagnosed with a life-altering ailment. Many times, those afflicted are blindsided, unaware that anything was wrong. Cancer, sometimes called the “silent killer”, is one example of disease that can go undetected until too late.

The company offers a comprehensive solution to a questionable future with its ever-expanding product line, paired with the company’s health monitoring and tracking software.

Sherry is very well respected in the community and has a large following in the anti-aging and wellness communities throughout Southern California.”

The Cardio-Cor unit was designed specifically to help the body disperse of the toxins and chemicals that have accumulated in the body throughout time. This toxicity has been linked as one of the causes of cancer and aging. These toxins are mainly found in the fat cells of a body and in the lymphatic system. Anti-aging and wellness centers have found it very beneficial to stress the importance of detoxification, but also offer continuing education regarding the causes and prevention of body-burden toxins and chemicals.

StockGuru Blog: Essential Innovations (ESIV) Elemental Models Make Sound Business Sense

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

President and CEO Jason McDiarmid, �We have amassed a history of installation and long-term application of geoexchange technology in residential and commercial building projects not easily rivaled by most other companies around the Globe.�

Commercial builders choose geoexchange heat pump technology because it makes sound business sense.

Using a geoexchange system for heating and ventilating buildings can help a business reach maximum earning potential.

For instance, a 1.7 million square foot building that chooses a geoexchange system can save $300,000 annually. As the Geothermal heat pump consortium noted in their website,

� These savings translate into many income-generating solutions. Lower heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) costs could help make office leases more attractive to tenants, while ensuring maximum earning potential for building owners.�

Many businesses choose an environment-friendly heating and cooling system to take an earth positive action.

Jason MacDiarmid, CEO/President stated �Carbon-friendly �green� technologies ever on the rise we expect this trend of business to increase for many years to come.�

While the greening trend will certainly continue, only one geoexchange system stands out above the rest. Elemental Innovation Elemental models give added functionality, flexibility, and sophistication.

Carbon-friendly technology with added sophistication

HotOtc Featured Company: Sarissa Resources Inc. (SRSR.PK) Readies Dead-Moose Lake Property for Gold, Copper and Nickel Mining Operations

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

A junior mining operation is about as close as one can get to the actual gold rush days of the Yukon, when miners headed into the wilderness for adventures and discoveries unknown. If they struck it rich, their pockets came home full of money and their heads full of stories beyond belief.

Sarissa Resources Inc., a junior development mineral exploration company, operates exploration activities in Peru and Northern Ontario, Canada. Currently, the company is making advances in the Northern Ontario properties and slowly investigating its Peruvian opportunities.

The company holds rights and ownership positions in several properties in Northern Canada. The Dead-Moose Lake property, however, is the property that is currently showing signs of mineral deposits. The recently released Ontario Geological Survey Open File Report 661, the Montreal River Headwater Area Sediment Survey for Northern Ontario showed the highest levels of certain minerals in the region tested, which is within the company’s now-staked boundaries. Further testing by the company confirms that there are five target sites to be further developed with gold, diamond, platinum, nickel and copper recovery being highlighted.

Getting toward the removal of these potential deposits became much more a reality in recent weeks as the company entered into an agreement with Botanic Oasis International Inc. to take advantage of the Dead-Moose lake property. Operations are just getting underway but the prospects do appear somewhat encouraging according to the company.

Doral Energy Corp. (DENG.OB) Changes Name and Agrees to Purchase New Property

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Effective April 28, 2008, Language Enterprises Corp has changed its name to Doral Energy Corp. Shareholders’ approval was not required to change the company’s name. No changes were made to the company’s articles of incorporation or bylaws and the company will continue its existing business as an emerging oil and gas exploration and production company.

In addition to the name change, the company has agreed to acquire a significant package of oil and gas producing properties in southeastern New Mexico in the northwest section of the Permian Basin. The property is currently producing approximately 120 gross barrels of oil equivalent per day (“BOEPD”). The company will purchased 7,500 acres of leasehold acreage and 186 total wells from Hanson Energy in cash, stock, and an overriding royalty interest transaction combination.

Doral Energy CEO Dr. Paul Kirkitelos stated, “We are very excited about this acquisition, because it not only positions us to be an immediate participant in the vibrant oil and gas markets, it also places us in the Permian Basin, a region of very strong oil production pedigree, and an area in which we are focused on assembling a portfolio of producing assets. The Hanson Energy property fits in nicely with our strategy of acquiring assets that have solid existing cash flow, plus the opportunity for significant production increases through operational improvements and new drilling.”

Further, H. Patrick Seale, the Company’s lead consultant for engineering and operations stated, “This purchase for Doral Energy provides a strong entry into the Permian Basin with current oil and gas production and very significant upside potential. Based on extensive studies of the properties to date, we have created a work plan for operational improvements that we believe could increase production from the existing wells by up to 30% by the end of 2008, in addition to our development drilling program for the undeveloped acreage.”

He continued, “The work plan will include well repair and clean-out workovers, well chemical treatments and acid stimulations, and improvements in pump and production facility efficiencies. The implementation of this work plan will begin immediately upon closing of the transaction.”

Angiotech Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ANPI) Adjusts for Remainder of 2008

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Angiotech Pharmaceuticals (ANPI), a global specialty pharmaceutical and medical device company, announced its financial results for the first quarter 2008. Angiotech reported a $3.9 million loss for the first quarter, which equals a 5 cent loss per share. Analysts had projected a loss of 3 cents per share.

Angiotech made a number changes in their internal control systems to strengthen their financial reporting process and reduce the incidence of errors. The weakness in the process was described in the March 13, 2008 release that announced the company’s 2007 year-end financial results. Angiotech has engaged a large public accounting firm to provide additional resources and guidance in the preparation of further quarterly results.

Recently Angiotech made a decision to suspend enrollment in the clinical studies of its Vascular Wrap™ product. The company will investigate alternative methods for future funding and development of the Vascular Wrap™, including potential partnerships. Due to the delay with the latest product, Angiotech will implement expenditure reduction measures to create positive cash flow and net profitability by fourth quarter 2008. The company anticipates the potential for additional cash at between $8 million and $12 million through the proposed sale of real estate assets in the second half of 2008.

“We had a strong product sales performance. It was broad-based and every business line was at or above our Q1 targets. In addition we have four new brands expected to launch in 2008,” said Thomas Bailey, Chief Financial Officer at Angiotech. “We expect 15 percent growth in top line product sales for the year. We also expect margin improvements in the second half. Our cash burn is biased in Q1 and Q3 with limited cash burn expected in Q2.”

“Our base business is ahead of plan, and we are on plan for promoted brands,” added Dr. William Hunter, President and CEO of Angiotech. “Product sales grew across all of our business lines, our promoted brands had strong revenues across the board, sales for our Quill SRS product, which continues to generate excitement in the physician community, were in line with our expectations, and our 5-FU CVC product was approved by the FDA ahead of our expected timeline.”

CEVA, Inc. (CEVA) Grows by Leaps and Bounds in ’08

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

CEVA bills itself as a leading licensor of Silicon Intellectual Property (SIP) platform solutions and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) cores for consumer mobile-electronics. Yesterday, CEVA, Inc. reported first quarter financial results which stand to push it further toward success in the Intellectual Property sector.

From the beginning of January until the end of March, the company recorded over $10 million in total revenue; 30 percent higher than the $7.7 million attained in the first quarter of 2007. CEVA’s royalty revenue (commonly associated with IP licensing) reached an all-time high of $3.7 million, and earnings from services also showed a significant increase. Net income for the first quarter was $5.5 million, compared to $0 in 2007. Diluted net income per share for the quarter was $0.27.

2008 started off great for CEVA. The company concluded ten new license agreements; eight for CEVA DSP cores and platforms, and two for other technologies. Targeted applications include 3G smart phones, cellular femtocells (service-providing docking stations), portable multimedia players and solid state drive (SSD) devices.

Gideon Wertheizer, Chief Executive Officer of CEVA, stated “The first quarter of 2008 represented the most successful quarter in CEVA’s five year history, with record total revenue, royalty revenue, net income and earnings per share. Record royalties of $3.7 million reflect the Company’s growing market share expansion in the cellular handset market. Our strong presence across all the key handset segments, comprising of ultra low-cost, mid-range and high-end 3.5G phones, continues to grow as many of the leading handset manufacturers transitioning to multi-source strategies favor CEVA’s DSP technology.”

There did not seem to be one area in which company development receded in the first three months of this year. With rapidly increasing earnings, and an ever-expanding technology base, CEVA, Inc. is definitely worth a look.

Today’s telecom firms are subject to far greater rivalry than anything previously experienced.
